    Pros

    I love working for STEMCELL. This company has a ton of integrity, and truly cares about helping scientists. With fast growth there is always lots to do, and I always feel I'm making a meaningful contribution.

    Cons

    In rapid growth companies there is always lots to do, it can be hard to fit it all into an 8 hour day.

    Advice to Management

    With such quick growth and so much to do, encouraging work life balance is an important an area of focus.

    I worked at STEMCELL Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Offices are extremely accessible through transit. Office atmosphere feels almost like a research lab - friendly, casual but not too casual, and deceptively lax. Most employees are between 25-40 and it's fairly early to make friends outside your own team through intramural teams. The holiday is a real company highlight, but their devotion to Halloween was very much a welcome surprise.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is preached, but not necessarily practiced. Surprisingly conservative and almost uncompromising when it came to policy and procedure; a new radical idea would require strong foundations and research that back it up for it to even be considered. Thinking out of the box is encouraged in theory, which leads to a high probability of creative burnout.

    Advice to Management

    Company growth is making the red tape bloat. Trust that the people you hired know what they're doing so trust their judgment.
